Up to 90% of women have stretch marks, and although there is nothing wrong with having them, you may feel self-conscious. Typically, stretch marks occur during a period of rapid growth from pregnancy, the rapid increase in muscle mass and weigh gain. These thin lines or streaks most commonly appear on the abdomen, buttock, breast, hips, thighs and shoulders.
La Belle Vie offers several different non-surgical treatments to minimize the appearance of stretch marks with lasting results. Contact La Belle Vie Medical Care & Aesthetics for your Free Consultation for stretch mark reduction. Give us a call today at 801-987-8384 for a free consultation.
Stretch Mark Scar Treatment Before and After Photos
While some lucky people have skin that is genetically thicker with plenty of elasticity, most of us have less elasticity which means we are more prone to stretch marks. The sudden stretch of your skin with weight or muscle mass gain pulls collagen bundles in the dermis which is the second layer of skin just below the epidermis. The caring and professional aestheticians at La Belle Vie will determine the treatment options based on the number and severity of your stretch marks to provide the best possible results.
Procedure to Remove Stretch Marks
The micro-needling pen treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that encourages new collagen and elastin production. The pen-like device delivers a controlled skin injury using fine needles to puncture the skin’s surface. This innovative micro-needling solution will give you increased collagen and elastin which will result in the minimized appearance of your stretch marks. Depending on the severity of your stretch marks, multiple treatments may be necessary.
Moderate to Severe Stretch Mark Scarring
Deep dermal heating is a treatment that combines micro-needling with RF energy for moderate to severe stretch mark scarring. La Belle Vie is proud to offer our clientele the new Profound to deliver focused RF energy deep into the dermis. This safe and effective treatment provides revolutionary collagen remodeling to drastically minimize the size and appearance of stretch marks and tightens the skin with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Post Treatment and Downtime
After your Profound treatment to improve the appearance of the fine lines and texture of stretch marks, you will experience minimal downtime and may encounter redness and bruising that can last up to 5 days post treatment.
Advanced Treatment for Severe Stretch Marks
Laser skin resurfacing especially following the Profound provides an aggressive approach to treat severe stretch mark scarring. With proven results for dramatic refinement in your skin’s texture and overall appearance. The CO2 laser was developed to penetrate the skin with thermal microchannels to create a thermal effect and targeted ablative without harming surrounding tissue. The resulting micro-injury sites jumpstart your body’s own natural healing process by stimulating collagen production and strengthening neocollagenesis. This treatment has social downtime of 4-7 days.
